1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    i'll be the naysayer and say return them. you said yourself you have an eye on something else and you don't think you'll wear them much.

    I like shots at this angle. Shows the shoes in a way we don't normally see them. And these are beautiful, of course.

    New RL Marlow Wingtip [​IMG]Yes I know this is tantamount to sacrilege on this thread, but I think they'll be a great compliment to my growing family of shell cordovan shoes. [​IMG] With Snapseed you can really see the different shades in the shell. My #8 PTB 990's are almost officially up for sale. Can't keep everything, or can you?

    Awesome! What sizing did you end up going with? Same as Barrie?

    Why yes, I did go with my Barrie last size of 11D. Very comfortable within minutes of putting them on.

    Just picked up a pair of Alden New England calf split toe oxfords on Ebay, pictures when they arrive. Think I've developed a serious shoe problem since I started browsing in here. Have purchased from Ebay lately: the Aldens, a pair of AE Cameron penny Lloafers, and a pair of Redwing cigar Beckmans. It all started with me buying a pair of Wolverine 1000s three weeks ago.

    HELP, think I'm sick!

    Ah, that's my post from 2 years ago. As I mentioned in a later post in the thread, I had the wrong size. Going from 11 E to 11.5 D fixed it.

    Thanks to fellow sf'er PhiPsi32, I am the happy new owner of a brand new pair of LS CXL Jumpers. They have just a day's wear on them so far and I am loving them.

    Very nice, both Patrick and David... :slayer:

    Btw, just listed some cigar chukkas (see sig). Want to move them fairly quickly so all offers will be entertained

    Don't do that! Go to a J&M store, or call one up - tell them to place an order for you and just ask them for free shipping. I went to my local one (Prudential) and they had a pretty weak selection of colors. I took the ones they had and had them UPS the rest of them to me. Got all 7 colors for $15 - free shipping... :)

    Wasn't it? I left Newburyport this morning and it was 32 deg. By 1PM I was eating lunch outside in the sun [​IMG].

    Edit: Those are awesome! Too bad BlackBird isn't still an Alden retailer.

    Agreed 100%...if I could trade in my 403s for these I'd do it in a heartbeat. The only thing I don't like is the pull tab, but that can be removed easily
